Congress leader Rahul Gandhi welcomed a new and adorable member to his family earlier this month, a cute doggo which he named 'Noorie.' What's in a name? Muslim leaders have slammed the pet dog being named 'Noorie' and stated that it comes as an insult to the women of the community.
AIMIM leader reacts
AIMIM Leader Mohammad Farhan released a video in this regard and said, "Many Muslim women are given this name. I want to ask the Congress party, which terms itself to be secular, and Muslim politicians whether it was right to keep their dog's name as Noorie."
"Will Rahul Gandhi apologise?"
Farhan further asked whether Rahul Gandhi would tender an apology to Muslim girls and women for giving one of their widely-used names to a dog. "Kya is krit ke liye, Rahul Gandhi ji desh ke tamaam Muslim betiyo se aur beheno se maafi maangenge?" The leader expressed that if he doesn't accept his mistake and feel sorry, it would hint at how the Gandhi family sees Muslims.
